My favorite color ❤
haha, Thank you, thank you. Always keep it spotless, and shiny! I was also thinking of the blue color, but it's a bright blue, and i feel like it would be a cop magnet! I drive aggressively as it is. lol. The cops in my area suck for pulling people over for anything unfortunately. Oh the 2.0T Sport as many of you know is wicked fast! I love the wheel design most of all.. very aggressive and fast looking! :geek:?

I have a 2018 1.5 lx in the same color and I love it. My initial color choice was black but I’m glad that I changed my mind.

Yeah, trust me, I hear ya! Everyone's got either, white or black cars.. so boring looking. I was looking at red, blue or the grey. my last car, 2014 Civic Si in fire orange I called the Carrot Top was a cop eye-sore unfortunately. I swore to myself that I wouldn't do that to myself again! lol. That's why I said that about the blue color and also for the red color. I didn't want another black color, and white is soo hard to keep clean. Modern steel metallic looks soo stealthy as well, which is what I love about it! It's definitely an awesome, and subtle looking color for sure! Good choice!

I don't like cars in black during the summer. Makes my head feel funky

Modern Steel and the Silver are my personal picks!

Thanks for sharing pics!

Yeah, I hear ya! I used to have a black 2003 Acura RSX. It looked nice, but it was also a pain to always keep clean. The Lunar silver color, since it's a lighter color, looks like most other silver cars out there eon the road. The deeper color of the Modern steel just looks awesome!

I like how well the silver is at hiding scratches lol

All of my Hondas have been silver. 98 LX, 2012 LX, my wifes 2018 Civic with the CVT (I love the body of that car, would love to engine swap it lol).

Only car I ever owned that wasn't silver was my old 89 Plymouth Reliant K. My friend slapped a 5.0L HEMI Badge on the back of it, much hilarity ensued.

Looks good. Why the brake upgrade?

Well, my ideas have always been that when the OEM parts on the car start to wear out, start replacing them with upgraded parts. I also want better , more responsive brake feedback. Ive always upgraded the brakes on my dad's in the past as well.

Yes, these Honda 2.0's Move and with Lighter Wheel Tire Set Up - Helps with the Corning Also . .
Seems most Factory Alignments are Off some - so after 3-4 months for Springs & Suspension to Settle in which more like 1 Month really ..
I'd Document the Actual Alignment Spec's - More Pictures soon ..

Personally I'd Keep that Grill as that Color Blends into the Road , Believe Me Old Folks will Not see Sporty Coming .. Factory Grill will Save U . . .

Haha oh yeah, I hear ya! I mean for me, I just absolutely love the way it looks. The factory grill is awesome. Yeah that 2.0 type R engine moves! Definitely can't wait to start upgrading the parts on it though! ?? It's just so damn stable at high speed and cornering!

Looks good in the gray. I've ended up going with the blue (Still Nigh Pearl). It's a bit different than all the blue Civics you see in a similar color. Knew I wanted blue, stick shift and 2.0. Boy was that really hard to find, dealer traded it in from elsewhere I think...

Haha oh I can imagine! I heard that in the six-speed manual version of the sport, you don't get the boost gauge in sport mode. Not quite sure why that is though! yeah I was going to get the blue color but like I said, I didn't want to be a Target for cops in my area which are assholes! The modern steel metallic is the second best color in my opinion. I appreciate your compliments! I can't wait to start tuning the brake system and upgrading the tires in the future. I've seen how hondata has even tuned the 2.0 t sport on their dyno. Looks good. Believe me I know how you feel. My father has a 2017 BMW and 240i convertible and six-speed manual. He wasn't able to find a six-speed manual convertible from BMW at all at the dealerships. He had to order straight from the factories in Leipzig Germany. One of the best things I've done for detailing the paint is putting hydrocelex around the coating it doesn't allow anything to stick to the pain, and it allows detailing when it rains very easy.

It does not have a boost gauge, there is no "sport" mode button that you can press like there is with the auto. There's only the "econ" button, which is dumbfounding, especially when people drivings sticks would appreciate a boost gauge and that red color of the dashboard, etc. Don't get it, but not much I can do about it. Am actually debating trading the Accord for a Bullitt. It's been a great fun car, but I'm hungry for power and am not sure I want to mess with my Accord and its stock setup.

haha yeah, I know what you mean! I'm not so sure why there's an econ mode in any sport! As far as the sport mode red gauges and the boost gauge for the 6-speed manual version, you should have one too, and I'm not sure why you don't! Yeah the car's got a ton of torque and a ton of power. Can't wait to start modifying mine! How is driving the stick shift in the sport 2.0 t? Is it smooth or clunky?

Sport mode is not available in the manual transmission cars. Which means the red/boost gauge isn't available either.
